American Society of Clinical Oncology recognizes MD Anderson leaders for their contributions to cancer research
Date:6/2/2014

Cancer research and treatment has evolved significantly in the past five decades. As the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) celebrates its 50th anniversary, the organization named former MD Anderson president John Mendelsohn, M.D., Waun Ki Hong, M.D., and Gabriel Hortobagyi, M.D. to its list of luminaries.

Mendelsohn served as president of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center from 1996 2011 and directs its Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Institute for Personalized Cancer Therapy. Mendelsohn is widely regarded for his transformative role in understanding how growth factors bind to the surface of cells and regulate their functions.

Based on his clinical and laboratory research, Mendelsohn and colleagues at the University of California San Diego developed monoclonal antibody 225, which inhibits cell proliferation by blocking the signaling pathways activated by epidermal growth factor receptors. This discovery became commercially known as Erbitux and was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for treating colon and head and neck cancers.

Mendelsohn has received numerous honors, including the Raymond Bourgine Award, Joseph H. Burchenal Clinical Research Award, the David A. Karnofsky Memorial Award, Fulbright Lifetime Achievement Medal and election to the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences. Additionally, he's currently a fellow at the James A. Baker III Institute for Public Policy at Rice University.

Hong leads MD Anderson's Cancer Medicine division and is internationally recognized as the foremost authority on treating and preventing head and neck and lung cancers. In his nearly four-decade career, his innovative research led to seminal contributions in chemoprevention, larynx preservation and personalized therapy in lung cancer.

Hong has authored more than 660 scientific publications and trained and mentored hundreds of oncology fellows. Throughout his c
